Breakthrough Energy Ventures, First Solar, and Hunt Energy Enterprises are the three top shareholders in CubicPV.
CubicPV reportedly plans establish a 2GW solar wafer and cell manufacturing unit with an investment of around $300-350 million under the Indian central government's production-linked incentive scheme.
While CubicPV will establish and control the wafer and cell manufacturing, the yet to be determined local partner would handle module assembly from the cells and marketing in India. CubicPV will utilise 1366's trademark Direct Wafer process to produce wafers directly from molten silicon instead of ingots.

The DOE funding is for projects that could increase access to reliable electricity by improving the country's understanding of perovskite stability. Eventually, the department hopes to enable the domestic production of high-efficiency perovskite devices. (Source: Hunt Perovskite Technologies, PR, Website, Apr., 2021)

While perovskite cells have shown promise in the lab, more work remains to be done to ensure that the technology is ready for commercial success, according to NREL. Manufacturing, durability, and sustainability remain challenges and will be the consortium's research focus. Members of US-MAP will share R&D, validation, and pilot manufacturing, which will reduce development costs and technology risks for potential investors.
US-MAP has six major US-based industry players as founding members: BlueDot Photonics, Energy Materials Corporation, First Solar, Hunt Perovskites Technologies, Swift Solar, and Tandem PV.
